Sep 13 2009: Excellent and very easy! Hadn't had Toad-in-the-Hole in ages. Had some British sausages I picked up from an import store. I thought 220C was closer to 425F, but wish I'd stuck with the 450F as stated, I had to keep it in the (gas) oven for longer. Served this with mash, green beans and an onion gravy. My little ones loved it too! Thanks for another great recipe French Tart. Update: just an FYI for others, a British 1/2 pint is 10 oz, not 8.
Wow! This was really, really good. We had this for dinner tonight to celebrate the opening of the London Olympics, served with mash, peas, and onion gravy (recipe 18620). Here's the adaptations I made, being in the US: Oven at 450, a 9x9 ceramic casserole dish, 10 ounces of milk, and 4 ounces of flour by weight. And, forgive me, I had to use 1 pound of bratwurst, because there's no English sausage to find here. Ten minutes with just the sausage, and 30 minutes with the sausage and batter was perfect - the pudding was crisp on the outside and custardy in the middle. Thanks for sharing a bit of England with us!
My husband cooked this for Tea tonight and it was briliant, I hadnt had it in ages and this really hit the spot. We used a medium sized roasting tin and were very happy with the resulting Toad int' hole. Hubby popped the batter in the fridge an hour before using, and added a pinch of baking soda to the mix to make sure it rose as we have had some flat ones previously.
Mm this is so yummy! :)
I have made this several times this Winter, my boys and I LOVE it! I use pork and beef breakfast sausage and serve it with mashed potatoes and gravy....so good and a real comfort food.
I have heard of Toad-In-The-Hole but have never had it before. This is very easy to make and tastes yummy. The Yorkshire pudding was crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside and complimented the sausages perfectly. I had them with the mashed potatoes, onion gravy (Onion Gravy) and peas. I can see why this is considered comfort food in England. Thanks for another great recipe, French Tart.
i acn hardly wait for the end result as being a man cooking is not one of my strong points, but i shall keep all posted with my results.
Always wanted to make this, and your recipe looked great...guess what, it was!! My hubby was a little sceptical at first, but after he took the first bite...let's just say, it's for supper again tonite! LOL. Definitely a winner with mashed potatoes and onion gravy! Thanks for the awesome new family favorite.
This is a tasty dish, my old roommate used to make this recipe, and I always liked it. Now I make it often.
This is a very easy and quick dish to prepare. It was delicious and I would recommend following French Tart%u2019s recommendation of serving with mashed potatoes and onion gravy!
